The newest of blur’s business services exchanges, blur Accounting and blur Legals are now “open for business” – that’s right you can now brief for your business projects in the financial and legal spaces. Since they were announced last year, legal and accounting firms from 43 countries have joined the exchanges and these experts are now ready and waiting for your briefs. To use the new exchanges, customers follow blur’s standard Exchange process – from briefing to project delivery and payment online – to source and deliver corporate legal and finance requirements. As with all the exchanges, our services commerce approach (s-Commerce) means that your business can benefit from a more streamlined way to buy its services: and service providers from small to mid-sized firms have a more efficient platform to win and deliver new business. These include projects like IP and patent filing, employment contracts, arbitration, tax planning, financial planning, compliance and tax. For legal and accounting firms the exchanges offer the perfect platform for the generation of new business opportunities that can grow from the delivery of an initial project to valuable ongoing customer relationships. If you’re a startup business it’s the perfect way to get your legal and financial requirements delivered cost-effectively like drawing up your employment contracts; if you’re at a more advanced stage then you can benefit from worldwide expertise delivered cost-effectively. You can see more examples of projects that you’d like to brief – check out Accounting projects and Legal projects. Last year 776 briefs were submitted to the Global Services Exchange with a total value of over $16m, including 23 to blur Technology, which was the most recent exchange to go live. There are now eight exchanges live on the Global Services Exchange. Lesley Gregory, Chief Executive of independent London law firm Memery Crystal, commented, “By joining the Exchange, law firms will see new opportunities, but also a new way to interact and deliver services to their clients. It’s a must for those firms who want to embrace innovation and new practice.” Philip Letts, CEO of blur Group commented “The launch of blur Accounting and blur Legals marks another key stage in our growth as we build a world-beating services commerce (s-commerce) platform. The success of our other exchanges is having a clear positive effect in encouraging other businesses to join our expert communities, meaning a reduced time for the announcement of an exchange to launch. Businesses from around the world are wanting to be a part of this new approach to services delivery. ” If you’re ready to submit a brief – then visit the brief pages at blur Legals and blur Accounting!
